We are proud to offer a summer program you will not find anywhere else in the city of Chicago. Our one week Gaming Camp is designed to nurture your child's love of video games, while giving them the skills and the vocabulary to understand, analyze, and discuss their favorite games so they can take their interest to the next level. Throughout the week campers will enjoy:

  • Virtual Reality Video Games 
  • Dungeons and Dragons adventures with our professional Dungeon Masters 
  • Board Games 
  • Teamwork and Communication challenges 
  • Virtual Escape Rooms 
  • and more!

Throughout the week, campers will also engage in lessons on video game history, theory, and concepts to help hone their passion and give them the tools to make the most out of their love of games. Whether they aspire to a career in game development, content creation, or just a lifelong hobby, we hope to develop their relationship to video games so they can enjoy the medium to its fullest.

Business Review

“At the Raven Room we believe for many kids video games are not a distraction, but a legitimate interest and passion. We strive to nurture that passion so that kids can learn to use games to foster creativity, imagination, and social connection.” - Mat Benson, Director of Youth Programming
